Art Club and The San Miguel School

The Providence College Art Club is a student organization with members from a variety of academic disciplines. These students come together outside of class to explore different media in the areas of art and craft such as painting, sculpting, bookbinding, and greeting card design. The club is student run and takes part in a wide array of activities related to art and creativity on and off campus.

One example of Art Club’s off campus outreach is the work done by members of the club to support students at The San Miguel School in Providence. The San Miguel School is an independent non-sectarian middle school for boys operated by the De La Salle Christian Brothers. The students of Art Club volunteer at San Miguel, working as art educators and mentors to inner city youth. On campus the club sponsors many events and meets frequently, often making use of the department’s studio and gallery facilities.

The club is administered and represented by a student board.
